Dale Chihuly: Beyond the Object

Corning Glass Museum in Corning, NY (2 hours South of Syracuse)

past exhibit artist:
Lake Placid, NY
Art materials:
acrylic paint (or color sharpies)
paint brushes
water buckets
clear plastic solo cups or clear plastic bottles (make sure to cut the bottle in half and only use the bottle half)
cookie sheet covered with aluminum foil

Use color sharpies to color the inside of the cups or bottles OR if you don't have color sharpies use acrylic paint to paint the inside.

***Think about your color selection. Do you want WARM COLORS or COOL COLORS?

Let dry

Place cups or bottles on cookie sheet covered with aluminum foil in a pre heated oven at 350 degrees for 1-2 minutes. Make sure to watch them.

Use tongs to take them out of the oven. You can use the tongs to change the shape a little bit.

The shape will be unpredictable and it's hard to control what shape it melts into.
